I go out walking in the moonlight
Into the crowded Thursday fair
And from afar I see a long black coat
And I think that maybe you are there.

I'm singing all your Desperados
And at the bar I see your hair
I stumble through a lyric or two
But look again and you're nowhere

I would not need to be your princess
I would not ask more than my share
And I would certainly not draw attention
But I'd bid you well if you were there

As I walk home and at the mile
I hear a voice up on the wire
A lovely owl stared down at me a long while
It must've been that you were there

Each time I see an aged man
Especially those who seem to care
Just like a kid, I study every move he makes
'Cuz when he turns you might be there

I would not need to be your princess
I would not ask more than my share
And I would certainly not draw attention
But I'd bid you well if you were there

When I walk out in the starlight
Into a crowded thoroughfare
And if I see a gray man in a long black coat
I'm gonna think maybe you are there

No, I would not need to be your princess
Well I would not ask more than my share
And I would certainly, I'd not draw attention
But I'd bid you well if you were there

I would bid you well
I'd bid you well
I'd bid you well, oo
I would bid you well
I would bid you well if you were there.



'I Bid You Well' is to my dearly beloved late father, Captain Joe Jablonski (Author of novels Three Star Fix and Flood Tide. Author of 'Pirate Nights,' a piece in The [peerless like my dad] New York Times). I never did get that chance to just say 'goodbye.' His
death (which I speak of in 'Maybe Now Is A Good Time') was abrupt, mysterious (unbelievable) and does not seem to ever stop providing my soul with anguish. I still wonder if someday in NYC, I'll bump into him (in that long black coat).
